Not sure where I stand (cGPA: 3.07 L2: 3.72 LSAT: 164)

Recommended Posts

As in title... I know my cGPA is pretty weak. My L2, L3 (I did 5 years) and LSAT are all ok I think... I’ve only written the LSAT once.

L2 is 3.76 on 4.3 scale.

Mostly interested in Dal, UofO and Western, but I’m honestly not overly fussed; would consider anywhere within Canada. I don’t think I would qualify for access, so applying general.

What do you all think? Thank you in advance 🙂

If your ECs and references are decent, I think you have a good shot at Dal and Western. Ottawa seems more focussed on cGPA, but you probably have a decent shot there as well.

Ah good point; I’m pretty confident in my PS and references. EC’s are nothing to write home about, but decent I think.

Yeah I’m assuming my odds are lowest at Ottawa of those three, but I don’t really know.

Appreciate the input 🙂

you only dropped .04 converting 3.76/4.3 to Olsas?

I didn’t convert to or from OLSAS for 4.3; I used my transcript and converted my grades directly to 4.3 using the weighted scale guide on Dal’s website (I only converted the grades from my final 2 years). But yeah that’s what I ended up getting.

I think it’s because I have a good number of “A” grades; which increase in weighted value by a decent amount on the 4.3 scale, as opposed to “A-“ or “B+“ grades.

Hi usrockband, 

I recommend using the site lawapplicants.ca run by Ryn and inputting your grades to determine your OLSAS cGPA. It was a great diagnostic tool for me.

Your OLSAS cGPA and L2 may not be what you think

They are. That number is straight from my OLSAS portal. First 2 years are pretty rough. Last 3 are a significant difference. I spent more time than I care to admit putting together a spreadsheet based on my transcript to give me all of these numbers and confirm the OLSAS assessment haha.

UOttawa doesn't do L2 as much as Queens and Western.

You should apply to Queens next cycle. Western might accept you as well.

Didn’t realize Queen’s did L2. Definitely good to know!

    • I have gotten silence as well.   
    • Western has said that they hope to have most of their decisions made by May 31st, so it's more than likely you will hear back by then. Until then, you can assume that they haven't reviewed your application yet.
    • Where you get your undergraduate degree doesn't matter, what you do and how you do while getting your degree does. Pick a school that best aligns with your interests and puts you in the best position to succeed. Just make sure you work hard and get good grades, and take part in extra-curricular activities when you can.  If you're interested in and enjoy law & society and/or criminology, take it. If you're as set on law school as it seems you are then you shouldn't have worry about it not working out. And I say that as someone who actually graduated with a law & society major and a crim minor from Laurier's Brantford campus who has still been accepted to law school. Not being in Toronto for your undergrad doesn't put you at a disadvantage when it comes to law school admissions, all that matters is what you do with your time at whichever university campus you spend it.
    • Hey,  Im currently finishing grade 12 and planning on attending law school in the future but first I need to get my BA but I have a hard time picking a university. The one thing I'm sure of is that I want to study in Toronto which narrows it down to three alternatives, York, U of T or Ryerson. Initially, I had my eyes set on U of T based on what I had heard about student experiences and overall quality but the tuition fees are extremely expensive. I'm not trying to major in debts, law schools expensive enough on its own. Then I turned to York which seemed more affordable, more courses to pick from and aproachable teachers but I would have to deal with a long commute. Last but not least we have Ryerson, not so expensive either and way shorter commute but I don't know if the quality of education is any good? As for the program, I was looking at some criminology or law and society because those are what I enjoy but I can't disregard that I need to get a good GPA to get a chance at law school at all. I also have to keep my options open if Law School does not work out and having a BA in arts or criminology wouldn't be to much help, I need to be able to get a job after uni. Then there is the fact that I would like to work with corporate law, so would a business program be better in the long run? Are there any business & law programs? Should I pick the easiest way to secure good grades? Is U of T worth all that money? Which of the schools offer a more secure environment and a good community? Soo... I would love if anyone that has attended/ is attending either of the schools could share their knowledge and experiences, or any advice at all would be good too! Every opinion is welcomed Thanks in advance
